Tech investigators Digital Foundry have gotten an advanced look at Sony’s PlayStation 5 presentation by Mark Cerny that is happening now, and have posted the specs for the holiday console.
Here they are straight from Digital Foundry:
8x Zen 2 Cores at 3.5GHz (variable frequency)
10.28 TFLOPs, 36 CUs at 2.23GHZ (variable frequency)
Custom RDNA 2
Custom 825GB SSD
5.5 GB/s (Raw), Typical 8-9GB/s (Compressed)
NVMe SSD Slot
USB HDD Support
4K UHD Blu-ray Drive
On the face of it, the PlayStation 5 is contrasted with Microsoft’s Xbox Series X (which also recently revealed its specs) in some areas, such as the GPU of the Series X boasting 12 TFLOPS of performance. Cerny’s presentation and Digital Foundry’s analysis goes more in-depth on the PS5, its architecture, and how its used, beyond the numbers.
We’ll surely learn more about the PlayStation 5’s specs and how it all comes together from the presentation and in the future before launch.
